Hershey's book is perhaps the best book about Israel's nuclear program, with facts that are solid and provocative, including the alliance between apartheid South Africa and Israel that culminated with a (nuclear) explosion blast in the Indian Ocean. A must-reading for anyone interested in International Relations.

I wanted to read this book because it deals with a very serious subject, namely the nuclear armament of the State of Israel. It was worth the read since there is now absolutely no doubt in my mind that Israel is a nuclear-armed nation.

The deceit that was required by successive Israeli politicians, diplomats, nuclear scientists and others was monumental in scope and detail. However, the Jews had just come through the Holocaust, and there motto was "Never Again!"

The vast number of nuclear missiles that Israel has developed over the years at Dimona is a source of anxiety for me, if not for anyone else. Its current ability to target all or most of the approximate 190 capital cities in the world with thermonuclear bombs means that Israel is a very dangerous country.

People tend to think that Israel will only use its nuclear arsenal on Middle Eastern countries which threaten it fatally. I do not agree! I consider that Israel will punish the whole world of Gentile nations for failing to ensure its survival in the ME. As the general population begins to disappear from existence, those in underground bunkers will trigger the Samson Option and release ICBMs to many, many capital cities.

The ensuing Nuclear Winter will be Israel's farewell revenge on non-Jews, who have persecuted Jews since 70CE. This, admittedly, is not spelt out like this in this book, and I have no evidence that Hirsh thinks/thought this way. However, the enormous productivity of the Dimona nuclear weapons manufacturing base, which he does describe so well, is far, far too large for a limited nuclear attack on fairly local Arab and Islamist countries.

Needless to say, the Nuclear Winter will depopulate the world globally.

There were times when reading this book was not easy, but so often the best books are not novels.

Samso Option 13 Feb. 2014

I had looked for years for this book. I loned it to someone, and that is why I ordered it from Amazon.com. I knew they had the book. Everone who has ties, or an intrest in Israel, should buy this book. It is amazing how Israel was able to conceal there Nuclear program, till it was finished. If you want to know the "Truth" about what is happening in the Middle East, you should get this book. Israel tells the truth. Israel is one of tne greatest, and most powerfull Natipns in the world. I greatly recomend this book.
